Rmember us??? We've been stashed away in her closet--she says she couldn't find a
border for us...hmmmmphf!  When we saw all those Geishas prancing about on her design wall we began to take out our lutes and lyres and play sad dirges to get her to finally get a border on us.....

Note from Moi:  It has taken me over a year to find this border! Nothing has looked right.
But i like this fern and woodsy batik a lot...I like the way it draws this block into view especially

I had hand embroidered this fern freely and I do like the effect....
Here is the entire block

It is time to decide whether or not i will add more stitching on this border....to highlight the ferns more as this is a very dark print....

If you follow the labels "Nouveau Ladies" back in time, you can see all the blocks and my journey in Crazy Quilting and stitchery...
